I've pledged to play games and raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • I'm joining thousands of gamers and will be dedicating a day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local children's hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation. 

WHy i care

If you look around your family tree, there's a good chance you have your own story to share. Mine comes from my family.

My mother Nancy spent nearly a decade in and out of Sick Kids Hospital, undergoing many treatments over the years.

My brother Michael spent most of his childhood in and out of Sick Kids as well. He was born premature, and had severe asthma that required specialist attention. He also inhaled a peanut at a very young age, and had to be sent to Sick Kids Hospital because they were the only ones with tools small enough to operate on him.

My Son Rowan has been to sick kids for follow ups, as he was born premature and spend the first 2 months of his life in the NICU.

I can say from personal experience that there are too many kids that owe their lives to Sick Kids, and too many parents and siblings that can't thank them enough for keeping their family members around.

I think that's worth far more than my time, and I hope that's worth a few dollars to those reading this message.
